Oh, Whale

Create Spring Sat Challenges 006WOW…we have come to the end of our first week of Create with Connie and Mary Spring Edition 2013!  Love was in the air as we focused on special occasions sets in the Spring Mini.  On Saturdays we post a challenge to our subscribers and the design team posts their challenge card/project to their blog.  So here is mine for today!

The challenge this Saturday was a color challenge and it was perfect with the More Amore dsp!  And this little whale…sooo cute!  The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Pool Party.  I took two different prints from the dsp pack and added to the card base then added a strip of the Basic Black Scallop Polka Dotted Ribbon.  I used the largest Doily from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits Die in Real Red, added a Whisper White 1 3/4″ circle layered on a Basic Black circle to the center.  I did the whale in Primrose Petals and cut out with the Happy Whale Sizzlit.  The spout of water and waves are Pool Party, cut out and layers.  I stamped the greeting in Real Red on Whisper White, cut into a banner and added to the card front and finally heart from the Happy Whale Sizzlit in Primrose Petal.  The cute little eye on the Whale is a Basic Rhinestone colored with a black Sharpie.
